Charter Communications/LifeLock Chevy Cobalt 20th

SONOMA, Calif., July 25, 2008 -- Friday was not the kind of qualifying day Dave Connolly and the Charter Communications/LifeLock Chevy Cobalt team expected. He didn't get down the track once and was 20th in the Pro Stock line-up for Sunday's FRAM Autolite Nationals at Infineon Raceway.

"That was not the way we planned it," said crew chief Tommy Utt. "I didn't use the tire I planned to on the first run and we had a transmission problem on the second run."

The result was a time of 16.894 seconds in the opening quarter-mile lap and 9.734 seconds on the next one.

They will be ready to go for Saturday's last two qualifying runs.

"We run before noon tomorrow and conditions should be good," said Connolly.
